Urban Remains - Gilded Wrought Copper Druggists’ Mortar and Pestle Trade Sign

Very rare and amazingly intact late 19th-century wrought copper exterior building apothecary mortar & pestle trade sign. The old gilded finish is largely uniform, with an allover crazed finish. The midsection contains three massive ruby red glass lenses that were likely illuminated during the evening hours. The massive druggists’ trade sign was likely mounted against the building’s facade with a large pole mounted from the underside and a protruding bracket on the topside. Attributed to F. McLewee & Sons, New York, N.Y.
